29 Comments for Novak Djokovic Used Mickey Mouse To Crash A Rafael Nadal Interview [Video]

Giles Says:

Bad manners joker, bad manners, but then what would you know about manners, eh?

Gypsy Gal Says:

I couldnt hear a word of the interview,but this looks quite funny,Nole is always the joker,but in a nice rather than negative way….

Gypsy Gal Says:

And i think Rafa saw Nole out of the corner of his eye and by the looks of it thinks it was all quite funny anyway….

madmax Says:


I agree.

These two are great friends and rivals.

Temple Says:

It’s just fun Giles between two guys who ‘ve known each other from centuries, one of these days you are going to die of constipation.

Gypsy Gal Says:

Madmax true no malice,i wouldve loved to have heard the interview what little there was….

Giles Says:

Temple. If I do I’m taking you with me!

chris ford1 Says:

Like most sports, there is monotony and how athletes that cheer others up, go out of their way to do friendly chats with others, find something entertaining to do on long flights, practices, rain delays, etc., are appreciated To be out there like many players are to give the crowd and fans a little entertainment and schmooze time as well. and josh in a friendly way on Tour – are appreciated…Same can be said to be true in most workplaces.
Djokovic is by no means the only gregarious person with a sense of humor and high approachability – but of course, he is the most high profile and has a few quite good comic gifts

When not on the field of play, tennis players and support staff of the Tour do not climb onto ivory pedestals in togas to accumulate “gravitas”..

Michael Says:

Rafa and Novak share a cosy and intimate relationship. Although they are rivals, they respect and admire each other’s achievements, talents and capabilities. Novak always has this habit of imitating other players habits, sentiments, style and tantrums in a jocular fashion and provide them as comic relief to the spectators who yearn for it as they would definitely to like some thing more extra entertainment more than Tennis !!

Margot Says:

An “intimate relationship” eh? Well, tennisxers you read it here first….;)

sienna Says:

djoker’s sence of humor by far exceeds the regular Tx poster.

even a simple joke is enough for CF to write essay in explaining Mickey mouse joker
CF, You killed it.

sienna Says:

maybe cf can explaine again why the Federer semi streak was because weak opposition?
especially since a semi streak in slams a player doesnot play other top players. So his slamstreak was against the whole field.
So weakera was overall? from #1 to 100.

No mister there are still plenty of Federer era players around if the era was weak then no players would be around.

Gypsy Gal Says:

Margot i get you were joking about Michaels post,but lets not go down that road,Rafa gets enough digs about his sexuality and gender from certain quarters as it is,and all because hes the only one of the top not married with children….

Gypsy Gal Says:

Sorry meant top 4 guys….

chris ford1 Says:

Rafa and Nole have many commonalities. Love football, fishing. Their ladies are university educated, self-made. And hot, of course. They are not finesse players. They are gladiators with world class athleticism. Heart and mental toughness is their key for winning. Both own big boats on the Med. Both love cooking and are family oriented. Both regarded as among the nicest on Tour..
Got the measure of one another in the most played and one of the best rivalries in the Open Era.
Like Nole-Murray, a friendship tested by the present demands of all out competition – requiring some distancing.

sandy Says:

really child play for someone who is ambassador for unicef I would say more rivals than friends

Wog Boy Says:

“eally child play for someone who is ambassador for unicef I would say more rivals than friends”

Really stupid comment, what that has to do with being Unicef ambassador.
I remember Delpo pouring water from the bottle on Nole, ambushing Nole while he was giving interview, I think in Dubai, and they both couldn’t stop laughing, they are rivals but they are friends to who make pranks on each other. I wish I can find video link for that one. Delpo was like a little kid sneaking behind Nole and pouring water on him not once but few times, and he was loughing like a big man can lough, I loved it.

Gypsy Gal Says:

Wogboy exactly,where does it say that been an ambassador means that you shouldnt actually lighten up and have some fun once in a while,and yeah do remember the prank Delpo played on Nole very funny lol….

Tennis Vagabond Says:

Nice to see. As so many have said, if we are not in a golden age of the tennis itself, we are in a golden age of its leadership. Rafa, Novak and Fed have been exemplary spokesmen for the game, and its great to see Novak having fun. I don’t think Rafa felt comfortable as #1 (similar to Becker), but Novak seems to love the role.

Gypsy Gal Says:

Yeah TV i always got that impression with Rafa too,he seemed to enjoy the journey,rather more than the actuall destination itself….

Docpops Says:

Bad post Giles, but what would you know about posts or manners since you aren’t good at either. You need a years supply of ‘Tucks’ for that butt hurt Djoker has caused you. I see you have been MIA lately since Rafa is out of the US OPEN and while I like Eafa and feel for the guy, I feel no such sympathy for you!

Giles Says:

Docpoops. Your moniker says it all. Idiot! 😡😡😡😡

Docpops Says:

Yes I am a Doc and see that when you have no intelligent reply, you resort to attacking my name and profession. I find it rather childishly humorous. I will be happy to prescribe those tucks for you,Giles, along with consultation with a therapist who might be able to help you overcome your obsession with the Djoker. Better learn to be able to take it if you like to dish it out to someone who is not present to defend their self.

Giles Says:

Hello there Doc. I have a headache. Do you have some magic pills you can prescribe? Lol

Margot Says:

“My initial diagnosis
Rules out measels and thrombosis…”

Docpops Says:

Definitely can help you with a headache, however your infection of Djokovicitis is another matter!

Okiegal Says:

@Docpops…..My hubby had his gallbladder removed last Friday, food is still not agreeing with him. He is eating light, soup mostly. Stomach still hurting. Does upset stomach follow this type of surgery?? I hope you are a real MD and not a veterinarian (horse doctor)….. Lol Serious question though, for real.

Docpops Says:

Okiegal, approx. 34% of people that undergo Cholecystectomy surgery still have discomfort and dull pain. Your doctor can advise him on a diet and his discomfort may lessen when bile secretions even out. Best to consult with your family physician and avoid fatty foods. Some patients have problems with caffeinated beverages and dairy. Good luck to you.

kriket Says:

Giles is such a hater, it’s beyond comprehension. Good thing he’s stupid, so his posts are nothing more than noise in the Internet.
